I'm just here living my best, sober life.
The best decision I ever made.
Hey, I'm Siobhan!
Sobriety has completely changed my life in the best possible way. I created Not So Secretly Sober because I couldn’t keep the benefits of sobriety to myself.
I was never physically dependent on alcohol. I was a weekend warrior, binge drinking, party girl. Now I’m all about wholesome weekends and big sober nights out.
I stopped drinking on 17th December 2018 and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. I was a binge drinking, party girl. The kinda girl that lived for the weekend and was always ALWAYS up for a night out. When I did go out, which was almost every weekend. There would be a 50/50 chance of whether I’d blackout or not.
It was time to take action.
I decided I wanted to take a year off the sauce. I told myself I wanted to reset my body and my relationship with alcohol. When I look back at it now, I knew I was done. I was over the abusive relationship I’d curated with myself. I clearly wanted out.
I claimed my weekends back. I spent them climbing mountains, cooking and eating delicious food (it was nice to not throw it up!). I still went on nights out and stayed out late. I felt present and started laying the foundations to lead a life I felt content with.
I created @notsosecretlysober in early sobriety. It’s called Not So Secretly Sober because I just couldn’t keep my mouth shut about how much I loved sobriety. I wanted to tell the world how different I felt. That my skin finally started to fit me more comfortably.
